By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
A set of bombs and a hail of machine gunfire killed at least 120 and wounded 270 people in Kano, Nigeria's second largest city.
The bombs and the bullets exploded in the central mosque right in the middle of the city. The people had gathered to hear the Imam speak.
All signs suggest that the attack was the work of Boko Haram. The attack was very similar to many others that have struck the area since September - all of them perpetrated by Boko Haram.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan called on people to unite and fight the terrorists.
He said: "continue to take every step to put an end to the reprehensible acts of all groups and persons involved in acts of terrorism."
He asked the people of Nigeria: "to remain united to confront the common enemy."
Boko Haram has terrified the people of Nigeria. The only way to defeat the terror of Boko Haram is for the masses to stand up against Boko Haram.
